Nograles may soon be replaced as House Speaker
Manila, Philippines –
Latest news have it that some solons may be on the move to oust Speaker Prospero Nograles from the House leadership. The idea was supposedly floated by some administration congressman who are unsatisfied with his pace at pushing for charter change through a constituent assembly.
It was further put forth since Nograles recently admitted that he is also open to constitutional convention or any mode for that matter so long as reforms on economic provisions may be instituted hastily. The proponents adamantly want (1) charter change (2) through constitutional assembly (3) now. That’s Philippine politics in the raw.
It seems our beloved congressmen are threading a most dangerous path. Filipinos are sick and tired of cha-cha moves, cha-cha talks, and probably any stuff related to cha-cha before the 2010 elections. The present administration may have the numbers in the Lower House, the Senate, or the Supreme Court but severely lacks the trust and support of the people.
